How much does a radon mitigation system cost?

Yes, we are fully insured with general liability as well as errors and omissions insurance.
Am I allowed to be at the inspection?
Yes, you’re welcome to be there the entire time but it is not required. Some people do not show up at all. We do recommend you attend at least the last half hour. This allows time for you to take measurements and photos and also allows your inspector to stay focused and dialed in without interruption which will result in a better end product. Once we complete the inspection, we can then provide you with a full walkthrough of our findings and take the time to ensure all your questions are answered.
How do you know if the radon test is high?
The EPA has an action level of 4.0 pCl. Meaning any average measurement of 4.0 or higher is cause for mitigation. The EPA also recommends considering mitigation with average measurements between 2.0 and 4.0. But average measurements between 2.0 and 4.0 will likely not be addressed by the sellers as they are below the EPA’s action level of 4.0
The home already has a mitigation system, do I still need to test?
We always recommend testing to ensure the system is operating properly. Our experience is that one out of every seven homes with mitigation systems have radon levels that come back elevated when tested.
Do you offer well inspections?
We do not offer the well flow test but we can offer a water quality test.
Can you locate my sewer line?
Yes, we can scope and locate your sewer line for $165
Do you offer roof inspection only?
Yes, we can provide a roof inspection for $125

Do you wear masks during the inspection?
We follow all CDC safety guidelines. If the mask mandate is active, yes.
When will I get my report?
We provide same day reports. You will usually get it the same day or evening as the inspection.
What payment do you accept?
We accept Cash, Check, Card or Venmo.
Where is my email?
Be sure to check your spam/junk folder. Sometimes the emails we send you, end up there for whatever reason.
The home does not have a basement, do I still need a radon test?
This is one of the most common misconceptions among the real estate industry.
The EPA recommends all homes be tested. From our experience, about 60% of the homes we test without a basement come back with elevated levels. Although not common, we have even had second floor condos come back with elevated levels.
Do you charge to pull toilets for a sewer scope?
Unlike many of our competitors, we never upcharge for pulling toilets.
